This angry Tomato is a little old idea. Once upon a time, when the Orcs & Goblins Arachnarok model has been released I fugued out that you can make a big squig out of his abdomen. Those were time with no finecast and no original Mangler Squigs. So I bought another Arachnarok Spider and I cut his ass of. Then the whole project got on shelf. It's have been ripening there for years. Recently, Pszemek got his hands and some tool on that ass. He sculpted the face, legs and theeths. But while he was working on that ass, I got rest of Arachnarok model and sculpted something special. I'll show it to you soon. I can only add that my inspiration was Diablo, the game. After sculpting the Squig was a bit naked. So I've sculpted some mushrooms and added them to his back and on the base. Now the model was finished. Recently I've got a new idea to make glowing mushrooms since I love OSL on minis. But it has to wait for another Mangler model. This time it would be a balloon filled with helium.
I've just finieshed painting Sisters of Avelorn. The idea was to paint the whole unit using this hot metal effect, in this case it was just flaming bows. How it's going to turn out? Will the whole unit break the flaming effect? I'll let you answer the question (please use the comment form). I really love that flaming effect so much, I keep painting it everywhere! Now moving to skycutter and phoenixes. And guess what, there's gonna be a flaming one too!
This chick is a Handmaiden of the Everqueen. I've convertet this model using Sea Guard legs, female Wood Elf torso and parts from Sisters of Avelorn box. I really like that babe and it fits sisters very well.
Nurgle Daemons of Chaos for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Plaguebeares did get a socketed movement tray for whole unit. Inside this unit there are some of those loose Nurglings that try to be like real Plaguebearers :). Nurglings and Beast have 40mm square bases and Great Unclean One has 50mm square base. Drones of Nurgle have 50x75mm each. They easily rank up no matter if they are skirmish or base to base. The huge help here is that you can actually rotate mini all around. That makes Drones, Plaguebearers and Nurglings rank up so easily. Oh, and we will be making those round to square bases for sale. They are all magnetized.
This is the last model for this Daemonic Nurgle warband. I'll upload whole army pictures soon. The Great Fat One i mounted on 40mm base but it has bases options to field it on square base for fantasy and on appropriate round base for 40k. Actually the whole army was designed this way. You will see this tonight.
I have mixed feelings for New Drones of Nurgle. I like the fat flies or maybe they are mosquitos. On the other hand I really don't like plagueberers on top of them. Anyway It was really fun to paint those fat ugles that in overall I would say they are one of best sulpts for daemonic army. I'll upload some more closeups soon.
Do you remember Chaos Lord with hot metal weapon? Your suggestion was to make two more lords. Nurgle and Tzeentch one. I've finished the Nurgle Sorcerer Lord quite fast. Check it here.. Now I finished Tzeentch Lord. The model has been slightly converted, to give him more Tzeentch look. Pszemek has sculpted those beautiful feathers on his back. We swapped his weapon with horrors banner which can now act as standard or sorcerer's staff. And we used a head from forsaken box. I've painted this model in cool bluish fire of Tzeentch. You know, the warpflame does not burn in this edition ;). Let me know if you like it.
Third and unfortunately the last one closeup on those ogres. I forgot to take pictures of the standard bearer. I guess I need more caffeine. Anyway this is my favorite ogre. Great job on that guts, Pszemek!
